No drama, get her back to the car and give her some water, still no drama. Go to the garden centre to get some flowers for my window boxes. Still no drama. Return to the car with said flowers and Tilly has transformed into a dog I do not know. Her nose has grown, swollen right up and is massive, she looks really odd.
|the Gerard Depardieu of dogs|
I don't feel at all comfortable giving my pupski a human antihistamine but it appears to be commonly used and reduces the swelling of a histamine reaction in the same way for dogs as for humans. I NEVER knew that, you really do learn a new thing every day!
Anyway, we didn't give her Benedryl, not least because we didn't have any. Instead we bathed her nose, and her eye which was also swollen, with cold water and a few hours later she was much better....phew. By the evening all the swelling was gone and she was back to being her usual Tilly self playing tuggy.
|those eyes that just say 'play with me'|
Happy dog walking, watch out for them mean ass wasps.
